What Are You Currently Reading? (10)


lol remember when I started this post series and I said I'd make a better graphic at some point? And here we are, over a year later, and I'm still using this rough graphic. Sigh. But I digress.

Hello, friends! It's been a hot minute since I made one of these posts. My last one was on HALLOWEEN. Goodness. Suffice it to say I've read quite a few books since then. In 2021 alone I've read 15 books so far. My GR goal is 75, so I'm keeping up alright so far. Still the same moody reader as always.

And SPEAKING of mood reading, let's get into what I'm reading this weekend, shall we?

First up, I'm reading...

The Crown of Gilded Bones by Jennifer L. Armentrout

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout comes book three in her Blood and Ash series…

She's been the victim and the survivor…

Poppy never dreamed she would find the love she’s found with Prince Casteel. She wants to revel in her happiness but first they must free his brother and find hers. It’s a dangerous mission and one with far-reaching consequences neither dreamed of. Because Poppy is the Chosen, the Blessed. The true ruler of Atlantia. She carries the blood of the King of Gods within her. By right the crown and the kingdom are hers.

The enemy and the warrior…

Poppy has only ever wanted to control her own life, not the lives of others, but now she must choose to either forsake her birthright or seize the gilded crown and become the Queen of Flesh and Fire. But as the kingdoms’ dark sins and blood-drenched secrets finally unravel, a long-forgotten power rises to pose a genuine threat. And they will stop at nothing to ensure that the crown never sits upon Poppy’s head.

A lover and heartmate…

But the greatest threat to them and to Atlantia is what awaits in the far west, where the Queen of Blood and Ash has her own plans, ones she has waited hundreds of years to carry out. Poppy and Casteel must consider the impossible—travel to the Lands of the Gods and wake the King himself. And as shocking secrets and the harshest betrayals come to light, and enemies emerge to threaten everything Poppy and Casteel have fought for, they will discover just how far they are willing to go for their people—and each other.

And now she will become Queen…

How much I've read: 23%

Thoughts: So basically Jennifer L. Armentrout sat down to write this book & said to herself "this is going to be THE BEST BOOK." It's so freaking good. It starts with a bang and does. not. stop. It's interesting and the romance is perfect and dear goodness I love Kieran. And I'm only 23% in. AHHH.

And because my attention span is garbage I am ALSO reading...

Forever Never by Lucy Score

You don’t fall for your brother’s high school sweetheart, your boss’s daughter, or your ex-wife’s best friend. Especially when they’re all the same woman.

Under Brick Callan’s mile-wide chest beats a loyal heart with a few cracks in it. He’s the steadfast, overprotective type. Especially when it comes to the one woman he can never have. It’s a long, complicated history punctuated by fights, friendship, family, and an attraction that strains his iron willpower.

When Remi Ford returns to Mackinac Island in the dead of winter with a secret, Brick makes it his mission to find out what put the shadows in those green eyes. Even if it means breaking down the walls he’s built between them. Even if it means falling for the one girl he’ll never get over.

The free-spirited artist just needs to lay low for a few weeks so she can figure a way out of this nightmare. She’s definitely not staying. Not when the man who broke her teenage heart into splinters keeps showing up at her parents’ dinner table. Remi doesn’t need broody, bearded Brick riding to her rescue…again. Not when it will put them both in danger, costing them much more than their hearts.

Author’s Note: Frenemies-to-lovers. Opposites attract. Slow burn. Girl in danger. Glorious, glorious banter. Fighting as foreplay. Small-town shenanigans. Big, grumpy, pining, overprotective hero. Wild-child, trouble-finding heroine who keeps on pushing the hero’s buttons. Steam Level: Lava. Suspense: Nail-biting. Feels: Big time.

How much I've read: 78 pages / 14%

Thoughts: Since I'm reading and loving TCOGB, I was not looking for another book to read. But of course I stumbled on an ad for this one on Facebook and couldn't help but download the sample to peek at while I was at work on Friday. And now here I am with the whole book downloaded from KindleUnlimited, 14% in and so curious about where it's going. I really enjoyed Rock Bottom Girl by Lucy Score, so I have high hopes I'll like this one too. And so far, so good. I love how hung up Brick is on Remi. I am so here for the pining. And I'm curious about the details of what's going on with her. It's all shaping up to be pretty good!

So yeah, I have two monstrously large books to tackle this weekend. Now, I'd love to know what y'all are reading?! :)

  1. Looks like you're reading some good books. I'm reading Concrete Rose by Angie Thomas. It's really good and I should finish it this weekend.
